Critic Reviews for Live Freaky! Die Freaky!

You can imagine the stoned conversations that led up to it, but no, it could never have been a very good idea to do the Charlie Manson story in stop-motion animation with the voices of punk rockers.

If you thought the puppet sex in Team America was graphic, this movie makes Trey and Matt's marionettes look like SpongeBob SquarePants in comparison.

Audience Reviews for Live Freaky! Die Freaky!

This movie is so under-rated it's sad. This is an artistic and clever way to portray the Manson family. The voice acting, especially from non-professional voice actors, was amazing and this was well directed! Bravo John Roecker Bravo!

This was a horrible film. Thank goodness it was short or I would feel long-lasting regret over spending significant time on it. It’s about Charles Manson and his “family,” and how they come to murder the pregnant actress and her friends. The only reason that I laughed during it is actually a bad reason to laugh at a film, so it doesn’t really deserve points. There were plenty of times when the director tried to get me to laugh, but every time I sat silently. I only laughed because it’s a poorly done claymation. Some of the scenes were absolutely ridiculous! I can’t believe they even put them in the final project. They are so funny because they are so awful! Haha. I laughed at the movie, not its jokes, because honestly, the jokes were twisted. There are a few different types of twisted humor: there’s twisted humor that’s funny, and there’s twisted humor that goes too far and is just disturbing. This movie has the latter. It has so much of it that I was getting tired by the end of the film. It was never funny, and as the movie kept going it became less disturbing, so it was just there, taking up time. I was bored, and frankly, annoyed that these characters were still on my screen. It is a short movie, but it felt long because it’s just so damn not funny. It tries too hard, and it fails. I am going to give the movie a 10% because it actually had one good thing about it. When the scenes weren’t absurdly sloppy, they were actually visually fascinating. The director used good colors, unique angles, and really kinda just trips the viewer out. During a couple of the scenes, I couldn’t look away because the director’s techniques were so interesting. I appreciate his work for those scenes, but the rest of the movie is so bad that I almost forgot his good points. It’s dialogue is original, yes, but it’s not funny. It tries too hard and just ends up disgusting and pathetic. If I had any affiliation to this film, I would change my name and pretend like I had no idea what it was. It’s really that awful. It’s a portrait of the horror of the human mind, that’s for sure. It has one good point that is overshadowed by its many failures. I would never buy this movie. I would never even watch it again. Waste of time.

Out of all the Manson murder flick I have never seen one so original. This farce was a greatest colaberation of music and film. John Roecker I think had a vision and pulled it off purfectly.
